Week 3 Day 1...Hopefully the Problem is Solved!

Took Hayden to the doctor this morning....he still has an ear infection but he also has bronchitis! Poor little guy! He had to get a shot plus another type of antibiotic to take the next 5 days. Hopefully he will be feeling better soon. He has been pretty pitiful today.

I called Joe at McCoy's and talked to him about my issue. He said he needed me to bring the shoes in. So Hayden and I headed over there after his doctor's appointment. Joe watched me run in the shoes and said I was over pronating still. He said the shoes were a great fit for me but I needed some more arch support. So I now have orthotic insoles in the bottom of my shoes! I hope this is what has been causing the problems. It makes sense that my feet rolling in would cause pain on the inside of my leg like it has been.

I decided to run on my treadmill today since it was supposed to be rainy all day today. Let me tell you that I prefer pavement to the treadmill by a long shot! Running on the treadmill is VERY boring which in turn seems to make it harder for me. Today I had my 5 minute warm up and cool down walks, and then I jogged for 90 seconds, walked for 90 seconds, jogged for 3 minutes, and walked for 3 minutes. Then I repeated it. It felt a little better running today but I am still pretty sore. It didn't seem like I was aggravating the soreness as bad so hopefully the arch supports are helping. Time will tell I guess! I am proud of myself for making it through those 3 minute runs though! I was a little nervous about that!
